1 Samuel 30:1-31

And it came to pass, when David
<01732>
and his men
<0582>
were come
<0935> (8800)
to Ziklag
<06860>
on the third
<07992>
day
<03117>_,
that the Amalekites
<06003>
had invaded
<06584> (8804)
the south
<05045>_,
and Ziklag
<06860>_,
and smitten
<05221> (8686)
Ziklag
<06860>_,
and burned
<08313> (8799)
it with fire
<0784>_;
And had taken the women
<0802>
captives
<07617> (8799)_,
that [were] therein: they slew
<04191> (8689)
not any
<0376>_,
either great
<01419>
or small
<06996>_,
but carried [them] away
<05090> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
on their way
<01870>_.
So David
<01732>
and his men
<0582>
came
<0935> (8799)
to the city
<05892>_,
and, behold, [it was] burned
<08313> (8803)
with fire
<0784>_;
and their wives
<0802>_,
and their sons
<01121>_,
and their daughters
<01323>_,
were taken captives
<07617> (8738)_.
Then David
<01732>
and the people
<05971>
that [were] with him lifted up
<05375> (8799)
their voice
<06963>
and wept
<01058> (8799)_,
until they had no more power
<03581>
to weep
<01058> (8800)_.
And David's
<01732>
two
<08147>
wives
<0802>
were taken captives
<07617> (8738)_,
Ahinoam
<0293>
the Jezreelitess
<03159>_,
and Abigail
<026>
the wife
<0802>
of Nabal
<05037>
the Carmelite
<03761>_.
And David
<01732>
was greatly
<03966>
distressed
<03334> (8799)_;
for the people
<05971>
spake
<0559> (8804)
of stoning
<05619> (8800)
him, because the soul
<05315>
of all the people
<05971>
was grieved
<04843> (8804)_,
every man
<0376>
for his sons
<01121>
and for his daughters
<01323>_:
but David
<01732>
encouraged
<02388> (8691)
himself in the LORD
<03068>
his God
<0430>_.
{grieved: Heb. bitter}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Abiathar
<054>
the priest
<03548>_,
Ahimelech's
<0288>
son
<01121>_,
I pray thee, bring me hither
<05066> (8685)
the ephod
<0646>_.
And Abiathar
<054>
brought
<05066> (8686)
thither the ephod
<0646>
to David
<01732>_.
And David
<01732>
enquired
<07592> (8799)
at the LORD
<03068>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Shall I pursue
<07291> (8799)
after
<0310>
this troop
<01416>_?
shall I overtake
<05381> (8686)
them? And he answered
<0559> (8799)
him, Pursue
<07291> (8798)_:
for thou shalt surely
<05381> (8687)
overtake
<05381> (8686)
[them], and without fail
<05337> (8687)
recover
<05337> (8686)
[all].
So David
<01732>
went
<03212> (8799)_,
he and the six
<08337>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>
that [were] with him, and came
<0935> (8799)
to the brook
<05158>
Besor
<01308>_,
where those that were left behind
<03498> (8737)
stayed
<05975> (8804)_.
But David
<01732>
pursued
<07291> (8799)_,
he and four
<0702>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>_:
for two hundred
<03967>
abode behind
<05975> (8799)_,
which were so faint
<06296> (8765)
that they could not go over
<05674> (8800)
the brook
<05158>
Besor
<01308>_.
And they found
<04672> (8799)
an Egyptian
<0376> <04713>
in the field
<07704>_,
and brought
<03947> (8799)
him to David
<01732>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
him bread
<03899>_,
and he did eat
<0398> (8799)_;
and they made him drink
<08248> (8686)
water
<04325>_;
And they gave
<05414> (8799)
him a piece
<06400>
of a cake
<01690>
of figs, and two
<08147>
clusters of raisins
<06778>_:
and when he had eaten
<0398> (8799)_,
his spirit
<07307>
came again
<07725> (8799)
to him: for he had eaten
<0398> (8804)
no bread
<03899>_,
nor drunk
<08354> (8804)
[any] water
<04325>_,
three
<07969>
days
<03117>
and three
<07969>
nights
<03915>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, To whom [belongest] thou? and whence [art] thou? And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I [am] a young man
<05288>
of Egypt
<04713>_,
servant
<05650>
to an Amalekite
<0376> <06003>_;
and my master
<0113>
left
<05800> (8799)
me, because three
<07969>
days
<03117>
agone I fell sick
<02470> (8804)_.
We made an invasion
<06584> (8804)
[upon] the south
<05045>
of the Cherethites
<03774>_,
and upon [the coast] which [belongeth] to Judah
<03063>_,
and upon the south
<05045>
of Caleb
<03612>_;
and we burned
<08313> (8804)
Ziklag
<06860>
with fire
<0784>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to him, Canst thou bring me down
<03381> (8686)
to this company
<01416>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Swear
<07650> (8734)
unto me by God
<0430>_,
that thou wilt neither kill
<04191> (8686)
me, nor
<0518>
deliver
<05462> (8686)
me into the hands
<03027>
of my master
<0113>_,
and I will bring thee down
<03381> (8686)
to this company
<01416>_.
And when he had brought him down
<03381> (8686)_,
behold, [they were] spread abroad
<05203> (8803)
upon all
<06440>
the earth
<0776>_,
eating
<0398> (8802)
and drinking
<08354> (8802)_,
and dancing
<02287> (8802)_,
because of all the great
<01419>
spoil
<07998>
that they had taken
<03947> (8804)
out of the land
<0776>
of the Philistines
<06430>_,
and out of the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>_.
And David
<01732>
smote
<05221> (8686)
them from the twilight
<05399>
even unto the evening
<06153>
of the next day
<04283>_:
and there escaped
<04422> (8738)
not a man
<0376>
of them, save four
<0702>
hundred
<03967>
young
<05288>
men
<0376>_,
which rode
<07392> (8804)
upon camels
<01581>_,
and fled
<05127> (8799)_.
{the next...: Heb. their morrow}
And David
<01732>
recovered
<05337> (8686)
all that the Amalekites
<06002>
had carried away
<03947> (8804)_:
and David
<01732>
rescued
<05337> (8689)
his two
<08147>
wives
<0802>_.
And there was nothing lacking
<05737> (8738)
to them, neither
<04480>
small
<06996>
nor great
<01419>_,
neither sons
<01121>
nor daughters
<01323>_,
neither spoil
<07998>_,
nor any [thing] that they had taken
<03947> (8804)
to them: David
<01732>
recovered
<07725> (8689)
all.
And David
<01732>
took
<03947> (8799)
all the flocks
<06629>
and the herds
<01241>_,
[which] they drave
<05090> (8804)
before
<06440>
those
<01931>
[other] cattle
<04735>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
This [is] David's
<01732>
spoil
<07998>_.
And David
<01732>
came
<0935> (8799)
to the two hundred
<03967>
men
<0582>_,
which were so faint
<06296> (8765)
that they could not follow
<03212> (8800) <0310>
David
<01732>_,
whom they had made also to abide
<03427> (8686)
at the brook
<05158>
Besor
<01308>_:
and they went forth
<03318> (8799)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
David
<01732>_,
and to meet
<07125> (8800)
the people
<05971>
that [were] with him: and when David
<01732>
came near
<05066> (8799)
to the people
<05971>_,
he saluted
<07592> (8799) <07965>
them. {saluted...: or, asked them how they did}
Then answered
<06030> (8799)
all the wicked
<07451>
men
<0376>
and [men] of Belial
<01100>_,
of those
<0582>
that went
<01980> (8804)
with David
<01732>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Because they went
<01980> (8804)
not with us, we will not give
<05414> (8799)
them [ought] of the spoil
<07998>
that we have recovered
<05337> (8689)_,
save to every man
<0376>
his wife
<0802>
and his children
<01121>_,
that they may lead [them] away
<05090> (8799)_,
and depart
<03212> (8799)_.
{those: Heb. men}
Then said
<0559> (8799)
David
<01732>_,
Ye shall not do so
<06213> (8799)_,
my brethren
<0251>_,
with that which the LORD
<03068>
hath given
<05414> (8804)
us, who hath preserved
<08104> (8799)
us, and delivered
<05414> (8799)
the company
<01416>
that came
<0935> (8802)
against us into our hand
<03027>_.
For who will hearken
<08085> (8799)
unto you in this matter
<01697>_?
but as his part
<02506>
[is] that goeth down
<03381> (8802) (8675) <03381> (8717)
to the battle
<04421>_,
so [shall] his part
<02506>
[be] that tarrieth
<03427> (8802)
by the stuff
<03627>_:
they shall part
<02505> (8799)
alike
<03162>_.
And it was [so] from that day
<03117>
forward
<04605>_,
that he made
<07760> (8799)
it a statute
<02706>
and an ordinance
<04941>
for Israel
<03478>
unto this day
<03117>_.
{forward: Heb. and forward}
And when David
<01732>
came
<0935> (8799)
to Ziklag
<06860>_,
he sent
<07971> (8762)
of the spoil
<07998>
unto the elders
<02205>
of Judah
<03063>_,
[even] to his friends
<07453>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold a present
<01293>
for you of the spoil
<07998>
of the enemies
<0341> (8802)
of the LORD
<03068>_;
{present: Heb. blessing}
To [them]
<0834>
which [were] in Bethel
<01008>_,
and to [them] which [were] in south
<05045>
Ramoth
<07418>_,
and to [them] which [were] in Jattir
<03492>_,
And to [them] which [were] in Aroer
<06177>_,
and to [them] which [were] in Siphmoth
<08224>_,
and to [them] which [were] in Eshtemoa
<0851>_,
And to [them] which [were] in Rachal
<07403>_,
and to [them] which [were] in the cities
<05892>
of the Jerahmeelites
<03397>_,
and to [them] which [were] in the cities
<05892>
of the Kenites
<07017>_,
And to [them] which [were] in Hormah
<02767>_,
and to [them] which [were] in Chorashan
<03565>_,
and to [them] which [were] in Athach
<06269>_,
And to [them] which [were] in Hebron
<02275>_,
and to all the places
<04725>
where David
<01732>
himself and his men
<0582>
were wont to haunt
<01980> (8694)_.
